  • v Preface These two volumes contain the proceedings of the 9th International Congress of Hydrogeology and the 4th MEM Workshop on Fissured Rocks Hydrology, organ- ized by the Hellenic Committee of Hydrogeology in collaboration with the Cyprus Association of Geologists and Mining Engineers. The number of the manuscripts submitted to the Organizing Committee through- out 15 countries all over the world reflects the rapidly increasing interest that Hy- drology gains nowadays worldwide. The papers cover more or less all fields, such as mathematical modeling, statistical, hydro-chemical methods, etc., focusing on the environmental aspect. Aquatic environment, the main topic of the Congress, as it is shown by the title of the Proceedings Advances in the research of aquatic environment is covered by articles mostly dealing with ecological impacts versus water requirements, climate change implications on groundwater, anthropogenic impacts on the groundwater quality, groundwater vulnerability, and more. Both volumes follow the general structure of the Congress topics. Moreover the keynote lectures are also included. On behalf of the International Scientific Committee I would like to take this op- portunity to thank all the authors for their contributions, as well as all participants for their cooperation, which made this Congress possible. Additionally, I would like to express my gratitude to the staff of Springer and especially Christian Witschel and Agata Oelschlaeger for their hard work, patience and support. Last but not least, I would like to thank my wife Aggeliki and my children Athina and Ioannis for their patience and love.

  • vii Address of the Hellenic Committee of Hydrogeology The Hellenic Chapter of IAH proudly presents the Proceedings of its 9th Interna- tional Hydrogeological Congress, integrated in the frame, established during the last decade, characterized by internationalization and an opening to adjacent scien- tific fields. This is the result of continuous and painstaking efforts of all the mem- bers of the Hellenic Committee of Hydrogeology and of our foreign colleagues who attended our congresses and contributed by their papers and key notes and chiefly by their presence. The discussed Congress is characterized by several features and particularities. First of all, it is the first time that our Congress deserts the big cities for the Hel- lenic periphery cities as it is Kalavrita, the city which entertains our present meet- ing. Second, the international economic crisis affected both the attendance of delegates and the sponsoring of the event. Despite these difficulties the partici- pants and the sponsors presence exceeded the expected range. Moreover, the fo- cusing given to our congress subject matter, the management of the aquatic envi- ronment, covers a very important topical and seasonable existing universal problem, especially under the effect of the climatic change. Finally, the associa- tion with our new publisher, Springer is something that improves the level of the Congress in the field of the presentation quality and of the international diffusion of the proceedings as well. The IAH Hellenic National Chapter wishes to express its gratitude to the Organiz- ing Committee and its Chairman, Prof. N. Lambrakis for what they have done, the Sponsors of the event in such a difficult period, the local authorities of the city and the region of Kalavrita, the authors of the papers and key notes, and the partici- pants for their important presence in the congress. For the Administration Council The President Prof. George Stournaras
  • ix Acknowledgements The 9th International Hydrogeological Congress of Greece would not have been pos- sible to be carried out without the active engagement of many persons and the finan- cial support of Institutions and Organizations. I would like to express my gratitude to all of them. Moreover, I would like to thank in particular Mr Dimitris Dalianis for his perfect work in the construction and maintenance of the Congress website. I would also like to acknowledge Mrs Konstantina Katsanou, Panagoula Kriempardi and Katerina Karli, for their valuable contribution during the organization.
